“The fog is a chest, a magical chest! What wonders are hidden in it, the only way to see them is to dive into the fog!” Mehmet Murat ildan

Chatham is known for fog and commercial fishing and in this photo gallery we celebrate both. The photos are a blend of old and new and accompanied by a well-known, or obscure, fog quote. There is something about the fog that draws us in and we hope it does for you as well.
